  1. Newport Coast Park – This newer playground is so much fun for kids and close to the beach. Free parking is available in there on site parking lot and nearby.
  2. Hang at the beach – Look for shells, build sandcastles, or fly a kite. The beach in Newport is neat with lots of sea anemones.

  5. Visit the Sea Lions – Located near downtown, these sea lions can be fun to watch. Just ask around for where to find them. Every local in town knows where to find them.
  6. Hike Drift Creek Falls – North of Newport is an excellent hike the whole family will enjoy. Plus, you get to see a waterfall. It is steep on the way back up, but not too bad.
